TUCSON - The 15th day of triple digit temps this year is in the cards this afternoon.
High pressure developing south of the International Border keeps the thermostat up in the 100's, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. We'll see sunny skies and a stretch of triple digit days this afternoon through Sunday, which is a few degrees above average for this time of year.
A cold front passes north of the state Saturday, bringing a return of gusty winds. During the daytime hours Saturday afternoon, expect winds gusting to 25 MPH. As of now, Fire Weather Watches have not been posted for southern Arizona, but that may change.
Looking ahead to next week, high temps will range from the upper 90's Monday to triple digits by Tuesday and Wednesday. Overnight lows the next several nights drop into the upper 60's to low 70's under clear skies.
